Its super clean.A computer place upgraded my processor from 2.8 to the the i7 960 3.2ghz in it for me a week ago.

I ran an H100 for a long time on this chip and it was barely enough to OC. I'm not sure anything with the cooling power of an H50 can keep up... Maybe with some 120+ CFM fans in push/pull.

Honestly, and I very well could be wrong. I don't think anything with a 120mm radiator has the cooling power to justify the price. Can you fit a 240 in there? Or maybe 2x 120 radiators in different places?
